    Nuvi continues to lose and regain satellite reception; even in areas where there has never been a problem. Outages can last 20 minutes or longer. None of the common fixes (power of, disconnect, reset) affect the issue.

If its raining, that will cause you to lose satellite reception.

If that is not the problem, then do this: turn off TV & satellite. Wait 5 minutes. Power back on. Most of time this will fix it by itself.

If neither of those do it, unattach your satellite cable from back of satellite box. Power everything off. Wait 5 minutes. Now reattach your satellite cable. Power everything on. It should search for you sat and find it. Let me know if this works.

If none of those work, then I would call the sat company for help.

My new Garmin Nuvi 1450 lost satellite signal more than 30 times between Topeka Ks and KCI. Is this normal?


I have the same exact problem. Satellite detection outside of vehicle before starting out was full strength, as soon as you get into vehicle strength drops off to practically nothing. Now start driving and it continually loses satellite reception even on the open road with no hills and a clear day. It was mounted as far into the front windshield as I could get it and still crappy reception. Very disappointing as a cheaper Tom Tom my sister has works flawlessly. Also my daughters HTC desire Z cell phone GPS works flawlessly even from the back seats in the van. Maybe 1450LMT is just junk, and I should look for a refund.

Voice activation capabilities locked and none functioning after driving for 2 hours or so. Satellite reception getting lost even on a sunny day


I can help you reset and fix your Garmin Nuvi 265W.

Erratic behavior and improved satellite reception has been addressed in new system software / firmware update.

There are three steps to take to get your Nuvi 265W running like new:

  1. Back up your Favorites.
  2. Perform a Hard Reset.
  3. Download and then run Garmin WebUpdater to replace its firmware / system software.

I hope that helps.

No picture on tv just blank screen


Sounds like you lost your High Voltage Power source which lights up your screen. If you don't know anything about TV's do not attempt to fix this problem. The High Voltage Power Supply is around 40,000 Volts!

Lost antennae reception


either the antenna is broken, or your service was cancelled. Contact SIRIUS for your account info. Did you pay to have the new radio turned on? I believe they have a $75.00 "activation fee".

Lost satellite reception


I have the same problem, and so far the only solution is patience. If you are in a cutting, or between tall buildings, and the satellites are low down on the horizon, then it seems reasonable that reception will be between poor and zero. But in wide open spaces mine too sometimes loses the signal. Hang in there, and contact is restored.

Satelite reception lost constantly


Hello sothypaw,

In order to receive satellite signals your GPS receiver must have a clear view of the sky. If you are using the GPS inside of a vehicle the body of the vehicle may shield the unit from receiving these signals.

To minimize this the GPS should be mounted at the lowest place within the automobile that has a clear view of the windshield and side windows. If you continue to have problems then you might consider purchasing an external antenna for use with the GPS.

Even with a properly mounted GPS you may occasionally lose satellite reception due to local terrain (hills, mountains, dense forest etc.) or other obstructions (parking garages, tunnels, etc.) which can block reception.

Best Regards,
Ken
